This top is based off the Wenlan Blouse,this was my very first intermediate pattern so I was quite nervous and I found the instructions quite hard to follow so I ‘winged it’ quite a bit! I adjusted it quite a bit too but I am pretty happy with the results!
The top is too big on me as I made it for my Sister who is 2 sizes larger than I am so please excuse the way it hangs on me! I decided against the neck tie as I have used raw silk as the main material and it would just be too bulky with it attached. I am also just over 6mths pregnant so my bump effects the shape a little here too. I hope you like what I have done with it, please feel free to comment, any advice is more than welcome.
